Yesterday involved too much adulting and later in the evening I needed to do something to break away from it. I'm still working on figuring out the bills but I've made a dent in them and the biggest one (the mortgage) was taken care of yesterday. Of course my checking account is now feeling quite depleted but nothing you can do about that right now. I finally got my lawn mowed and I thought I was going to keel over when I was done because I mowed start to finish without stopping. I used the push mower because even though Wade kept telling me I needed to learn to use the rider in case something ever happened to him, I always said I would rather push. Tell me, just what was I thinking there?
So before I go in to what I did to relax from all the adulting I want to take a minute to thank all of you for your kindness. I'm deeply touched by the comments, emails, cards and phone numbers. If I don't call you please don't think I don't appreciate it, I do, I think I just wouldn't know what to say. Oh and did I mention that sweet Grace even sent me a virtual lasagna. The blogging community is simply wonderful and I feel deeply blessed to know all of you.
So on to something else. I played with a cell phone picture that I took on my walk through the park. This is what came off the phone. For some reason the pinecone and stick laying there like that caught my eye and I snapped.
I tweaked and toned and adjusted and then it looked like this.
Still needed more anti-adulting therapy so then it ended up like this.
After that I figured it was time to throw a post together to schedule for today and here it is.
